I didn't think I'd like this but I do! I will definitely be making this again. Very refreshing.
I also first tried this recipe at a day spa...minus the lemons. The longer the cucumbers sit in water, the better, more flavorful the water becomes. Do not use a plastic jar; it won't work. I bought a glass sun tea cooler glass jar from Walmart which has a spout on the bottom of the jar. I sliced the cucumbers, poured filtered water on top and put it in the fridge for several days. Whenever I drink a cup of cucumber water, I put a cup of filtered water back into the jar. I think the lemon, lime, or orange addition will be tasty too but I haven't tried it, yet. The biggest key to success is using a glass jar and letting it sit for days. ENJOY!
So simple. So delicious. Will keep a pitcher in refrigerator at all times!
Cucumber & watermelon are in the same family. So when I cut watermelon up I do this same thing with the rinds in place of the cucumber. Delish!
Very refreshing on a 95 degree humid day. Felt a lot more hydrated than plain water. Thanks for sharing.
This is great! If you have a special outfit to wear to a special event I cannot recommend this enough. Stay away from salt and sugar for 2 days and drink plenty of this and you will slim your waist line by up to 10 cm (3 inches). Thanks for posting!
This is really good. My daughter and I both loved it as did 2 of my boys. My husband didn't care for it. We live in the desert where it gets really hot and really dry. This is will be a nice alternative to plain water and iced tea.
I used 1 cucumber, 1 lemon and 1 lime in a large plastic pitcher. I cleaned the fruit and cucumber and then sliced it like it says to in the recipe and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours and I LOVE IT! Where I live it gets into triple digits during the summer and I hate the taste of most water. It tastes metalic and chemically so I have drank alot of ice tea and Crystal Light and wanted to find something I would drink this summer that was more healthier and this recipe is simple and ROCKS. I plan to check out the other recipes as well using mint, sage and rosemary.
This is one of my favorites! Have a similar recipe in my Spa Water Book...I agree about the plastic jar..Also, plastic spigots on beverage server jars are a waste of $$...
